The Birth of KeyDisplayer
Throughout the Windows platform, there was never a good working solution to display keystrokes and combinations with a nice, clean, and simple interface similar to those from the Mac platform. The idea for KeyDisplayer came from Jerzy Drozda Jr, aka Maltaannon, who made a similar application called ‘KeySnatcher’. The development for KeySnatcher came to a halt and was never released to the public (at least while this application was being made). VinhSon Nguyen decided to pick up the idea and make it into a working and finalized product. With the help of Matt Laux, we both now present to you the final product, KeyDisplayer.
